Heroes and Villains 2011:
Superhero and Supervillain of the Year

The votes are in! See who you picked as the very best and very worst of Toronto this year.

For two weeks every December, Torontoist recaps the year that’s winding down by nominating the best Heroes and worst Villains among all people, places, things, and ideas which had an influence on the city in the preceeding 12 months. And then, it’s up to you.

Here is who you, Torontoist readers, have deemed Superhero and Supervillain of 2011…


SUPERHERO

WINNER: Jack Layton (58.85%)

RUNNERS-UP: City Hall Deputants (27.43%); CodeBlueTO (13.72%)

TOP TWO WRITE-IN CANDIDATES: Adam Vaughan, Glen Murray

VOTING: Results are shown for the last round of voting in the ranked ballot—the round where one candidate finally surpassed the 50% mark. Layton led from the very first ballot, but many other nominees did well also; it took 11 ballots in total for Layton to pass the 50% threshold.


SUPERVILLAIN

WINNER: Rob Ford (52.72%)

RUNNERS-UP: Apathetic Voters (13.27%); Ford’s Council Friends (9.52%)

TOP TWO WRITE-IN CANDIDATES: Stephen Harper/Harper Government/Conservative Party of Canada; Giorgio Mammoliti

VOTING: Results are shown for the last round of voting in the ranked ballot—the round where one candidate finally surpassed the 50% mark. This time it was an open-and-shut case, as Ford won on the very first ballot. In other words: stacked up against 16 other villains, plus a write-in option, Ford got more than half the vote compared to all those other villains put together.

CORRECTION: December 31, 2011, 3:30 P.M. This post originally misspelled Glen Murray’s first name, using two n’s, but it has now been corrected. We regret the error.
